to welcome two experts. terry schmidt and steve clemens. -- gary schmidt and steve clemons. did his nomination surprise you? >guest: it did not. when you began looking at the transition from leon panetta and asking what kind of person who would have in there, someone who would command competency and stature. he seemed an obvious choice. host: news from "the new york times." pointing out to republicans who called him and appeasers based on what he said in a rock. he voted for the rock were but then turned against that conflict. the word appeasers seems to be pretty strong. -- iraq, but then turned aginst that conflict. the word "appeaser" seems to e pretde pretty strong. guest: the most important thing that happened during the war was the search. he voted against the surge. he called the worst mistake since the vietnam. when you're talking about putting somebody as secretary of defense and has such strong views, and wrong views, that is something that will be asking him. host: we're going to share with you some of the statements by senator haggle -- hagel. also, a number of speeches
was not granted pay -- steve harrison says an hour twitter page -- the national journal has a piece available online focusing on at this and other issues that the president will be facing in his second term. the headline -- seven democratic senators in conservative states facing tough reelection bids in 2014 said that the president has already had some unpleasant stumbling blocks within his own party. and gun control, the white house is calculating that it will be exceedingly difficult to pass broad measures. that is according to the new york times. rockefeller announced his retirement on friday, making his seat vulnerable for the first time since 1959. this story is available at nationaljournal.com. emery joins us from michigan, the independent line. host: good morning. i just wanted to know, how does the american people think it is totally obama's galt we are in debt? we had things going on such as the war that caused so much money. that -- that cost so much money. we have jets, we have so much put out to protect us. how could people be so upset, wondering if obama will be able to go throug
we quoted on friday, steve clemens was on our show today, quote, there seems to be an effort by israel and supporters over and over to continue to run resolutions to say, how much do you love me america? do you love me today, do you love me tomorrow and do you love me again. i am supportive of israel but i'm not going to zero game between israel and neighbors, but also have vital national security relationships with the united states let's bring in our panel. steve hayes, juan williams and charles krauthammer. steve? >> i think the quote you read is offensive. its clownish view of what people have been arguing both with respect to protecting national security but the threat that iranian poses to the united states of america. i think one of the areas in which hagel has shown himself to be president obama's left, and he has in a variety of different places, is the question of iran. hagel ruled out a military strike would be unreasonable, it would be foolish to do that. something that the obama administration despite fact i think they have taken a rather accommodating and patien
nebraska senator bob kerrey and "the atlantic's" steve clemons. senator, it's always an honor to speak with you. the president today said chuck hagel is an american patriot when he announced the nomination of the former senator from your state to head the pentagon. let's take a listen. >> chuck hagel is the leader that our troops deserve. he is an american patriot. he enlisted in the army and volunteered for vietnam. to this day he bears the scars and shrapnel for battles he fought in our name. we see a decorated combat veteran of character and strength. they see one of their own. most importantly, chuck knows war is not an abstraction. he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. >> well, senator hagel paid tribute to the men and women in uniform at the announcement today. let's listen to the nominee himself. >> mr. president, i am grateful for this opportunity to serve our country again and especially its men and women in uniform and their families. these are people that give so much to
steve as well about your deep knowledge of afghanistan and pakistan and the other bordering states. >> this is one that has taken a back burner. we are not that far removed from the election. the election was about by and large nothing more than the economy and which side could do it better. as a result almost every other issue gets pushed to the side, but we have, you know -- there are realtime tables in place in afghanistan about what we have pledged to do, what we will do. you talk about chuck hagel. what chuck hagel's role in all of that, if et wants to be secretary of defense. it's a complicated issue, and it's more complicated politically, andrea, simply because the american public -- this happened in iraq. it's clearly happening in afghanistan. the american public has tired of our involvement in these conflicts. this is not something new. this is something that has been long and coming. if you look at the history in polling at least of when that happens, public opinion almost never sort of sways back up to all of a sudden be supportive and think this was a battle worth fight
. this is a long time coming. this is a very long time coming. joining us now is steve clemons from "the washington note" and the new america foundation. steve writes at "the atlantic magazine" where he is washington editor at large. thank you so much for being here. >> my pleasure, rachel. >> president obama's announcement today that u.s. troops are going to change mission, move to a support role this spring. we had known that it was possible maybe as early as this next summer before today. do we know why the president felt he could accelerate the pace today and do it by this spring? >> well, i think that the president has looked at the -- he just won election. he has looked at the political tea leaves in the united states, and there is not very much support for this. and i think he is making a very important strategic judgment that the timing, that you've got american men and women still on the front line. they're still going to be in danger, but there is nothing strategically achievable in the spring that is different than what is strategically achievable in the summer or fall. and i think for t
't tough enough or they're not viewed as tough enough to handle the pentagon. and steve clemens on "rachel d maddow" made a point that swayed me. >> the democrats that came in many of them that came in with president obama and also part of the concern that americans don't trust democrats to deploy power to be forceful in the world have adopted in many of the institutions they have built in four to five to six years a pentagon hugging strategy of not wanting to reform or cut because of the fear that they will be considered vietnam democrats, anti-military democrats. >> and i think there's some truth to that and i do think in this time where we are going to be looking at cutting the pentagon's budget and scaling back our military to a certain extent, i do think maybe republican would be better positioned to do that and wouldn't be, especially one who's served in the vietnam war wouldn't be subject to the criticisms in the same way a democrat could be. >> part of obama's calculus. >> i will say i would like to see some women picked for some positions. maybe obama needs to borrow some of the

't come with the training. steve jobs was the brand marketing expert at apple. tim cook is logistics guy. we look at tim, how did he heck did he get to be ceo of anything let alone the most powerful company in tech? i think nature here, apple is looking across at samsung, competing hard with samsung and starting to adopt sam sung's policies and practices and samsung is a broadband, more of a value brand and segment. melissa: looking right now, the market share, what we've seen and it has just been a huge jump. in 2011, samsung's market share was 22% to apple's 13. if you look what happened in 2012, samsung has jumped all the way to 31%, a huge jump. another 10%. meanwhile apple just ticked up two points, to 15. seems like samsung is really eating their lunch and apple should go back to what has worked for them, instead of trying to do this other thing, right? maybe they can't? maybe they're out of ideas? their trademark was amazing innovation. is that gone with steve jobs? >> well, what steve wozniak beliefs, when steve jobs passed a lot of people that created innovation with apple left
's abc's steve osunsami. >> reporter: it looks real, but this $100 bill is funny money and production is booming. federal authorities are now saying that in most cases the crooks are using everyday office equipment, scanners, printers and ink. >> it's easier and faster today because of copiers and the sophistication in different type of inking systems. >> reporter: in atlanta, they busted a graphic artist. known in criminal circles as the printer. prosecutors say that he and his father and four other men produced more than a million dollars in counterfeit bills, using a printer to print out fake 50s. printing the front. -- front bill on one sheet, the back on another, before carefully gluing it all together. there are a flood of how-to guides on the internet. in november, rhode island police arrested this man, who they believed learned how to use a check cal suit to make fake 100s. >> a consumer takes the time to look at the water mark and see it doesn't match the portrait. they would know something was wrong with the bill. >> reporter: the government says new security features help.
has new details on steve cohen. melissa: you are always controversial. charlie: here is what is interesting about steve cohen. in february, as they see faces a window of redemptions. here is what we know. fac officials are screaming to prevent massive reductions. they are currently contacting and holding one-on-one meetings with investors. they are essentially saying that despite everything, the investigation -- a wells notice has been given. despite all of that, they think that steve cohen we'll be okay. they may get a large fine. they think they are facing charges. they will not be indicted. it will not be a criminal case. keep your money with us. the bottom line is this, you do not know until february. investors essentially hate this type of controversy. some very large investors have put holds on the stocks. i can also tell you, steve cohen and these guys are very aggressive. they are out there trying to get large investors to stay with it. they will come out after the story. these are different one-on-one meetings. this is crisis mode. they think there is a very good lik
is fueling a counterfeit boom. abc's steve osunsami has more. >> reporter: it looks real. this $100 bill is funny money and production is booming. federal authorities are saying that in most cases the crooks are using everyday office equipment. scanners, printers and printer ink. >> it is easier and it is faster today because of copiers and sophistication in different type of inking systems. >> reporter: in atlanta they busted a graphic artist known as the printer. prosecutors say that heath kellogg, his father and four other men produced more than $1 million in counterfeit bills. using a printer to print out fake 50s. printing the front of the bill on one sheet. back of the bill on another. before carefully gluing it all together. there are a flood of "how-to" guides on the internet. in november, rhode island police arrested this man who learned how to make a chemical soup to rub off ink on $5, turning them into fake 100s. he maintained he is innocent. >> if the consumer takes the time to match the watermark and knows it doesn't match the portrait, they would know something was wrong wi
plan. steve liesman is here on what you are hearing. how concerned are they? >> there is concern and it takes two forms, sue. two separate fault lines that developed over the fed. you are -- well, that the easy one. the economy meeting what we call the substantial improvement in labor market quicker than others do. they are worried about substantial group in the balance sheet and adjusting it once they stave off inflation. here is what they said about three different folks with the fed. another group a few others say we need considerable policy. that is qe. but they frnt telling us how long it gez on for. this other group called several others that say it is appropriate to slow or stop purchases well before the end of 2013. they site concerns about financial stability or the size of the balance sheet. here is what i understood to be some of those concerns. big balance sheet obviously could lead to inflation. they could be at a loss or make payments to the bank. as interest rates go up, principal gez down. payment to banks would come from interest on reserve in order to sequester
show. now they're partnering up with miss america. >> steve: look like a queen. >> gretchen: be in shape if you're on the run. log on to our after the show show. have a great day, everyone. >> brian: bye. >> steve: see you tomorrow bill: let's get it rolling. fox news alert. dire new warnings about the nation's financial health. set your calendar. a new report shows we have just about a month before our national credit card limit is officially, maed out. despite all the numbers on the screen maxed out. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to "america's newsroom.". martha: feels like ground hog day? i do. by partisan policy center they say the u.s. will smack its head on the debt ceiling, as early as february 15th, five weeks or so from now unless congress raises the amount of money we're allowed to borrow. bill: what are the resolutions? stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. good morning, sir. give us the facts on the story. >> deja vu all over again. it is a new cliff. groundhog day all over again. this is debt ceiling cliff and approaching much faster
and steve moore. steve, let's go to you first. based on our conversations this week, you like this deal a little bit more than i do. why don't you make the west case for doing it for the deal? >> this was for republicans eat your spinach moment. i don't see any other alternative to what happened. look, i think this is rampant deal for so many reasons. i think it's for the economy, my point is that i don't think republicans have much choice. you talk to john boehner and for mitch mcconnell the president would not budge one inch on cutting spending. he had no interests in doing that. the republicans believe, i think they were probably right, they had gone into 2013 without this tax issue resolved, they would be pummeled day after day. i hate the deal but i think it was the least
with iran. steve hayes in the weekly standard wrote nothing something in his blog this week, which i will put on the screen. >> chuck hagel said nothing as far off the table but one that believe us in the prospects for negotiation. we have been ready to negotiate under the right set of circumstances with iran for the last several years with our friends and allies so, force is the table but i'm glad we have people like the president and like chuck hagel who will be very careful when you start throwing around the terms -- >> he says it's not feasible. do you agree it is not feasible. >> what is the not feasible? >> military option? >>> military option is always feasible, you tell me what the option is. are we going to blow up tehran or go after facilities that might be well pro-toerktd hidden? and i think bob gates, the previous secretary of defense, who pointed out the difficulty of striking these places is a real one. so any military option is feasible in terms of dropping bombs but what is the result of that military attack? with respect to the revolutionary guard, he has reasons fo
steve elman dorve and rich gayland. i want to start with this job per se. the chief of staff is described as the second most powerful position in washington. would you agree with that assessment? >> yes, the title doesn't describe the span of control that the chief of staff has. such as chief of staff of the white house but chief of staff of the executive branch and his or her span is enormously broad. let me say something about what congressman rangel said. >> let me get to that. we'll ask you about the fact that the president has gone through four chiefs of staff in four years. there are other people in high stress jobs, tim geithner at treasury, hillary clinton at state who stayed on the whole time. is this a reflection on this president or just how grueling and critical this job has become? >> i think it's a reflection of how grueling and critical the job has become and how tough it is on people. i talked to someone leaving the white house yesterday. i said what are you going to do? i'm going to get a job where i don't have to get up at 5:00 a.m. every day. it never stops
from frostburg, maryland. independent line. caller: good morning, steve. i had a daughter that was murder ed and these people out there in newtown, connecticut -- my daughter was 5 years old. those parents will never be the same again. when the founders wrote the constitution for the second amendment they didn't have 50 caliber ak-47's and these other high assault rifles that were designed specifically to kill people. in our country we have too many sick people. my government continues to bow down to people like the n.r.a. and we need prudent, wise people making rules in our country now and quit butting down -- quit bowing down to these groups that are primarily in it for money. we have too many dying and too much sickness in the country. it needs to stop. somebody has to stand up and say enough is enough and use wisdom with the power they have in washington. host: thank you. are you still with us. caller: yes. host: what happened in your situati situation? 1979er: she was murdered in by a crazy person, another powe of america's crazy people. host: where was she killed? ca
seven times longer than the victims of katrina waited for federal aid. >> above politics. steve sweeney, a democrat, blasted christie recently saying -- i guess he prayed a lot and got lucky a storm came. i know you apologized for that comment, but do you stand by your sentiment that the governor has been using the storm for his own gain? >> not for political gain, but to hide his record in new jersey. he said i'm going to wipe the slate clean now because of the storm. before the storm hit, we had 9.6% unemployment. we had the second highest foreclosure rate in the nation behind florida. our poverty rate has increased 3%. you don't get to wipe the slate clean, governor and quite honestly, if this is your jobs package, it's not a good jobs package. the governor wants to paint a different state than what's going on. >> one thing i have to ask you about this is post crisis bumps happen. as distasteful as it may be, they do happen. it happened to rudy giuliani after 9/11 and president bush. to president obama after superstorm sandy, too. right? maybe the reality of it is good leaders shine
president obama's nominee for defense secretary chuck hagel. our guest are steve clemens followed by a look at emerging marths in developing countries. we'll discuss his book break out nations. washington journal, live at 7:00 eastern on c-span. >> if you ask how many themselves identify as lib tarnse. depending on which poll you look at you might get 10 to 15%. if you give people a battery of questions like do you believe in x or y and you track those, depending on which poll you are looking at you get as many as 30% of americans calling themselves libertarian. if you ask are you economically conservative but socially liberal you get half of americans saying that's what they are. just because people say these things doesn't mean they believe them. if you ask most americans do you want smaller government, they say yes. but then if you ask them to cut any particular item on the budget, they don't want to cut anything. so it's not clear if they really believe anytime. based on the best data i have in writing this book i'd say as low as 10% and as high as 30%. lib tarnse if they were lib tarns
flood of identity theft. steve brown with that controversy live from chicago. steve. >> reporter: jon, the bipartisan group of lawmakers who are pushing this legislation have been pushing safety and savings. that if the estimated quarter million unlicensed, undocumented drivers in the state of illinois were to get licenses, pass a driver's test they may are more likely to buy insurance and therefore the highways would be safer and insurance premiums would go down. for the folks in the his ace community in the state of illinois, a growing group for sure it would remove one of the potential consequences of unlicensed driving. >> have you to be extra careful, right? any kind of violation doesn't lead just to a ticket u know, it leads to an arrest and possible deportation. >> reporter: the state senate has already approved this measure. the state house we are told will vote today. the expectation is that it will pass. democratic governor pat quinn will sign it into law. there have been voices of objection including one state senate democrat voting no on the measure saying it's the cart be
, forced the health care system to do business, these numbers are real. steve's right. you were sold a bill of goods. these numbers are real. the health insurance companies are against the wall. they must pass on the cost. bill: what does it do to uncertainty for business plans, stephen moore? >> this is one of the biggest problems of all, bill. i saw a rasmussen poll a couple weeks ago, showed something like 75 to 80% of small businesses don't understand this bill. they don't understand how it works. they're completely confused how the health care system is going to affect their bottom line. one of the things you have to remember, all of these popular features about the bill, 26-year-olds can get insurance under their parents health care system, free birth control, all of these other kinds of things, those actually, somebody has to pay for that, bill, right? there is no free lunch here. that is what we're seeing in the higher premium costs. what i think it will mean, people will lose their health insurance. they will not gain it. bill: i hope you're wrong about that. matt, i will of about
in one by representative steve stockman outside of houston that would remove the gun free zones that have been so much like a magnet to invite mass murderers into zones where they know nobody else will be able to shoot back. and that i think is where the debate is likely to shift. are we really better off when we say no defense is a good defense? >> chris: i want to put up an ad that gun control advocates have started running against new democratic senator heidi hei dcamp of north dakota when she said some of the president's ideas about gun control are extreme. will that work. can ms. tanden and their allies and they have suggested they can drive a wedge between people like you, the heads of the nra and some of their members who may not be as hardline as you guys are on gun controls? >> i think the senator from north dakota is reflecting the views of the people that sent her to washington. so i don't think there is much room to drive any wedge. i think she is representing them rather faithfully and i think it is noteworthy that a democrat who would be under a lot of pressure within their
closed doors. we'll have the latest from the trial ahead. [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. >>> the horrific rape case that has sparked protest in india and outraged around the world moved closer to trial. the picture of the five suspects in the van was the only video from today. that's because there was so much chaos inside the courtroom, that a magistrate sealed the proceedings off. she also slapped a gag order on reporters. we'll have more on that in a moment. first, the rage of this attack is unleashed. it is important to talk about, and it is really extraordinary, the reaction. you have to keep in mind rape is very common in india. in 2011, there were more than 24,0
are responsible for all the problems facing our country, but you sure are making them harder to fix. >> steve palazzo, one of the no votes on sandy relief, tried to get funding for his own state after hurricane katrina. turns out he's got company. think progress put together a list of 37 house republicans who voted against sandy funding but who have in the past supported federal disaster funds for their home states. >>> a new ppp poll asked people to compare congress with some other realities of american life. the good news is here are a few things congress beat out in terms of popularity. playground bullies, meth labs, and lindsay lohan. anyway, the bad side, congress came out less popular than this stuff. nfl replacement refs, used car salesmen, and root canals. overall favorability for congress stands at 9%. that's out of 100%. >>> bill maher is not done needling mitt romney. >> the election is behind us. mitt romney is -- what's going on? the career over for him in politics? >> you know, that's what everybody says. i am not of that opinion. he's going to be running again forever. >> he wo
. host: this next caller is steve in missouri. caller: the slide that showed just a moment ago represents the state of our country. if you really look at it, we are losing the group that was the most self-reliant in this country. and the other folks are becoming more and more dependent upon government. the other comment i would like to make is that if we would change the programs so that politicians actually had to rely on these programs as well as the rest of the country, maybe there would be some motivation to change the programs. guest: that is an interesting point. the silent generation, has some of them call them, those folks who are pre-baby boom, but post- .reatest generation projec a lot of them came of age in the truman and eisenhower years. it is a generation that has been a bit more skeptical of government all along. they have never been terribly supportive of the government is expanding and taking on a bigger role. not so much as the generation that preceded them, who came out of the new deal era and world war ii and sought a much more powerful role for government in our socie
that aside, yes, steve, this has become the norm. in this day and age, nothing ever happens until that has to happen because the hyper partisanship and the polarization in congress, and so while we all were glad on new year's day or new year's eve this other issue as we also know we have three other issues coming up by the end of march that we have to deal with. >> this is from tom manley and norm freehery. it's worse than it looks and they have five myths about 112 congress and i want to share one of them because a lot of references in the 80th congress referred to as the do nothing congress which by the way past 906 laws including the marshall plan which they say was one of the most consequential in the 20th century. it created the defense department and the national security with the sweeping reorganization on the security apparatus in contrast in the 112 congress enacted the smallest number in the modern history. including the 40 that were post office and commemorative resolutions. >> we have plenty of laws and the problem we have is some are stupid and we need to get rid of to read th
and your readers, a piece for "atlantic monthly," go on the atlantic site, steve wrote a great piece from a credible perspective about senator hagel's relationship with the lgbt community. we will have a chance in senate hearings for on senator hagel to address this head on. i suspect maybe he is second only to rg3 this morning in terms of washington's bandwidth. i expect they will be well attended and highly viewed. >> not bad company to be in. a quick question on iran. that's a whole other category and lots of questions. if you look, a long record of opposing sanctions on iran. look at what the president has done, he has aggressively and increasingly ramped up sanctions on iran. seems completely contradict trooe ry on that front. >> he has a report of opposing unilateral sanctions on iran. he was supportive of multilateral sanctions on iran. they are, woulding to some affect. he is opposed to unilateral sanctions, because is he very clear on the threat that iran poses, and the danger iran poses, but he doesn't think unilateral sanctions are effective. he thinks they isolate the united s
, but it is not absolute. -- confluence of interest, but it is not absolute. host: steve, republican collar. caller: i would like to know what countries have recently gone oil contracts over this whole thing. -- recently gotten oil contracts over this whole thing. guest: there is not a lot of oil in afghanistan. there are huge mineral rights, which have been purchased to great extent by china. the oil in iraq has been purchased by a number of countries. they have purchased the rights to extract and sell that oil. the iraqi industries on an upswing right now, and it is one of the reasons that the world prices have stabilized, and some suspect may even go down. the united states did not do a particularly good job of getting its share of that business for a number of reasons. and certainly, in afghanistan, the united states is not benefiting economically from the investment is making. it is likely that china will be the beneficiary long term of the u.s. affected afghanistan if afghanistan does stabilize because of the mineral resources there. for those who suspect that we conduct wars for economic intere
